I have spent the past few weeks trying to plan out a solid plan to reach my goals for the year. It has been difficult, work has been busy, I have been avoiding spending extra time on the computer (waaay to much computer time at work,) and life gets in the way.
The idea is to get 300 hours of work (web dev and coding,) exercise, and art (computer and “fine”) completed by the end of the year. It may not sound like much, but that is 900 hours total this year, and that is quite a bit.
So far the art has gone smoothly, I have completed 20 hours, half painting and half making icons and logos. I have not fared so well on the work or exercise front. I have no real excuses, I am just not motivated right now. Plus I am kind of avoiding computers unless I HAVE to (I had to do the icons and every hour was a struggle.)
I am now trying to figure out a way to visually track my progress. I was thinking about a finding a WP progress meter or maybe print out 300 Leonidas heads and color them in for each hour completed (sounds like fun right?!)
Well there is the Spartan Meme aspect to it. I really did not think about that until after I did some math. 365 days in a year, about 251 workdays (http://www.workingdays.us/workingdays_holidays_2014.htm#) a good median is 300. That leaves me with a few rest days and some days where I can do “make-up” hours.
Now I just have to figure out what I want to paint/CG and what I want programing languages I want to study.
